University Stereotypes

Walking around and people watching on campus is literally one of my favourite things. It's HILARRRRIOUS. People do the craziest stuff when they are stressed out. One time, I saw a guy come into the weights section of the gym, pull up a mat and take a big  ol nap. It was beautiful.
Something I noticed while I was creepily people watching is the university stereotypes. Seriously, its a thing guys. I just do not understand them.

Let me explain.

First year (Froshies. noobs)

Ah, look at them. So fresh faced. Just finished promming. 

They have all these wild ambitions.
and everyone else is all like:

Also, you can spot them a mile away. They still leave the library to eat. I have literally no shame about this. I'd like to try and test the limit sometime. Maybe a 'make your own taco' station at the back of the main floor. Any takers?

And then you get onto...

Second Year (the 'oh my goodness I'm not even half way done' year)

Generally, I find this is the year people get super opinion-y. I'm all for social change and a better tomorrow but sometimes I'm not really sure what they are saying.

Me: *at subway* Yes, I would like some guac on my sub.
Subway person: oh, we are out of guac right now. 
Me: Oh dang. *jokes* Man, the world is running out of guac! 

Person in front of me in Subway line: 

My response: 

Moral of this story: Be the guac you want to see on your sandwich. #deep

Third Year: (the 'so close yet so far')

Day 1:

Day 2: 

and last but not least,

Fourth year (the final frontier)

Summed up in one picture:
so close. 

Happy Tuesday!

Final Exams

Ah, spring is in the air. Look at that sun shine! Hear those bird sing!

Oh wait, you can't because you are in the lower ground of a library that looks like a dungeon for books. Or is that what all libraries are.....

And then just when you are done with all your final assignments, you get the perfect thank you known


wow. Look at how tough that font looks. I wouldn't want to mess with that font. It's like looking at your arch nemesis. Tough, brooding. Kind of like my own personal nemesis: 

ah, that's better.


as I approach one of my last final exam season, I am reminded of some excellent study tips I have picked up over the years. I have decided to share them with you because I am your best friend.

Study Tip #1: Spend 70% of your study time using grade calculators.
They can accurately calculate how much you should freak out for this exam.

Study Tip #2: Find good study partners
My person favourites are these wonderful people named Ben and Jerry. Such sweet people. Can be a little cold sometimes.

Study Tip #3: Read the sillybus.
Excuse me, Syllabus.
It will help you figure out what textbooks you didn't buy.

Study Tip #4: Exercise
Look at this puppy. He is saying "Why would I be cramming, when I could work on my hammys?"

OKAY IM AWARE HE ISNT WORKING HIS HAMMYS IN THIS. OH MY GOODNESS people, i completed an anatomy colouring book just like EVERYONE else. He is clearly working his phalange.

Study Tip #5: Find some good study snacks
Suddenly things you would never ever eat become viable options.
Study Tip #6: Studying Osmosis
Study tip #7: When your prof says something won't be on exam, it most definitely will be.

These are fool proof guys.

Happy Studying! Keep your head up! Just remember:

Oh wait, he dies. 

Maybe that was a bad example.
